Great news! It appears that Jaguar has returned to the “traditional” tension screw style. If you are a sharpener of these shears in the past, you will know what I mean. These were the most difficult scissors to disassemble for sharpening. You had to have a "special" tool (provided by Jaguar) to disassemble the scissors. But the real challenge was assembling then back together. Trying to tread a brass "counter-sink" nut with a rubber "O" ring without stripping the treads require great patience and a steady hand! Sharpeners had to carry extra brass screws because often times you'd stripped the old one during reassembly.

This is an intriguing question regarding tipping. How do you decide if 15, 20, or 25 percent is the correct amount. Are you suppose to tip the owner? What if multiple assistants helped with your blowout or shampoo? How do you know where the tip is going to? Proper tipping etiquette at the salon isn't the same as tipping at a restaurant, bartender, massage therapist, or your uber driver. The cardinal tipping rule for salons is 20% but other factors could determine a lesser or greater amount. On an average 15-20% is the norm. Be your own judge based on the quality of service, expectations, professionalism, flexibility, length of relationship, number of associates involved, salon's geographic location. Most important, Ask questions to better understand their compensation process.
New Year, New Trends! Hot Head is a unique microwavable deep conditioning heat cap created by Sandra Snell, a professional hair stylist. It offers an easy and stylish way to achieve the results of a salon quality conditioning treatment at home. It dramatically improves the results of your favorite deep conditioner, hair masque, oil, or other hair treatment. Without heat, your treatment can only do so much to improve the quality of your hair. Typically, the cuticle is closed, so the treatment is only able to work on the surface of the hair shaft. The results are minimal and superficial when compared to heat enhanced deep conditioning treatments. Hot Head enables the hair cuticle to open for an extended period, allowing the treatment to penetrate the hair shaft, nourishing it from the inside out.
